Just Thinking...

So I wasn't planning on blogging tonight but I saw a few posts on Facebook tonight sparked my blogging nerve.

I came across this article, 10 Struggles of Not Being Fat But Not Skinny Either.  I mean how true is this?  (Excuse some of the language in the article.)  But I mean really being a female just sucks sometimes and this is usually the number one reason why!  I mean I have my moments where I look in the mirror and am like wow I look skinny today but that happens usually 1% of the time.  This article just nailed it on the head.  I am that girl that posts sometimes online when I am at the gym but it makes me feel good about myself.  If I posted every time I went to Barry's Bootcamp people would think wow she should be really fit because no lie I go 4 to 5 times a week.  I am that girl that cannot say no to French Fries.  They are evil and amazing all at the same time.

After a weekend eating amazing but not so healthy food, we went to a pool party on Monday for Memorial Day.  I felt like Flabby McFlabberson the whole time, then I saw a photo from the party of myself in a swimsuit and literally started crying.  WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?  I AM NOT FAT!

I do realize that my diet is not the best but it is not awful.  My workouts are AMAZING.  I can run a 6:20 mile but still don't love the way I look in a swimsuit.  I mean there is an issue there and that issue is FOOD.  I haven't had chocolate since Monday which is most certainly progress.  I am just trying to eat healthy!  I am not doing some crazy cleanse or crash diet, just eating healthy and making smart choices.
So here is to me trying to eat healthy and to quit being so hard on myself.  Comparing my stomach to the Pinterest Fitness Models is just stupid!

I started Tuesday morning with an Spinach Tomato Egg Scramble.




Ingredients

3 eggs
1 Handful of Spinach
4 Cherry Tomatoes
Turkey Sausage Crumbles

Mix ingredients together in a bowl and poor into a preheated pan.  Make sure to use a nonstick pan.  I usually cook this on medium heat.  I cook the eggs until they are nice and fluffy. 

This is really good and totally fills me up.


In honor of Maya Angelou I leave you with my all time favorite quote.   


Always be nice.  You never know what someone else may be going through.

New Favorite Things

I know can you believe it?  I actually am alive!!!  I actually just landed from LA today.  I was literally there for 24 hours!  I am not going to complain though because my trip was amazing!

Now to the good stuff!  I found NEW mascara!  I know you are so surprised.  I was at Sephora a few Fridays ago in search for texturizing spray and of course purchased all kinds of goodies!

This is the Kat Von D Immortal Lash!  

I mean check out that brush!  It is so awesome and it is so great for layering!! I love it so much I may buy another one when I run out and that says A LOT!!



So I totally got suckered into buying this.  The lady that helped me at Sephora was of course a rep for Laura Mercier and convinced me this stuff was amazing!  Well for once...she was right! I LOVE IT and my makeup stays on so much longer!  LOVE LOVE

Drum rolll please.....





My new favorite thing!  This is an AMAZING texturizing spray!  I use it on my roots to get my "southern" hair and then all over!  You really really really need this!  I promise it is totally worth $29.00.

I mean who doesn't want their hair to look like this??!?
